My all of my kids were that blonde when they were first born. Now my daughter has brown hair. When I married my wife her hair was about white during the summer.

Update.....

Took my SolAire back to the dealer yesterday and I already got a call this morning. The AC unit was bad (brand new/never used) and the dealer ordered a new one. It was in stock in Indiana, which is usually a 1-2 day delivery point. They will install it as soon as it arrives and I should be able to pick it up Wednesday! Woohoo!

Let's hope it all goes as planned. They have a few other small things to do. After my first trip out, here is my damages...

1. Drawers next to oven on kitchen slide out all gave out. Support that was holding all of the drawers in place was stapled in and 3 out 4 staples missed because the board was cut too short. This I went ahead and fixed myself and cut a new board and used cabinet screws like it should have had

2. Two of my frameless windows roll out but not back in. Dealer will fix

3. AC is bad. Dealer to fix

4. Long trim along the ceiling came off...dealer to fix

I did one of the more difficult fixes for them as I didnt want to have the TT there longer than a week (and I wanted it done right). Plus, I used to install kitchen cabinets...

At least it looks like a short repair timeframe. So you can get your fishing pole and take off campin'. HAHA!

That's strange on the windows. Wonder what's up with that...

The problems you have "BlakeB" seem to be appearing way too much in the RV industry. I read posts on this site almost daily about brand new units with problems and it seems that the owner finding these problems live the longest distances back to dealers. I have a friend (yep, just one) who recently bought a brand new 2014 Jayco "super-duper" $37,000 29 footer. This thing has a slide out living room and two (2) slides in the back with bunk beds on each side. Heck, his square footage must be close to what my house is. But--upon arriving home from the dealer which is about 100 miles away his living room would not go out. He had no water coming from the kitchen sink and his A/C thermostat would not work, although his heater would work. After a few phone calls with the dealer telling him to bring it back he got frustrated and hung up on them. Then he calls me. The fuse for the slide had blown so that one was easy. I had to remove the water lines to the kitchen sink to prove that there was no water coming through either line. Tracing the lines back I found that where they were supposed to be connected to the main water line(s), both hot and cold, they had never been hooked up. The "T"'s in each line had plugs in the side for the water lines. Got that one solved. The thermostat just didn't work for the A/C. I could get the A/C on by jumping across two terminals but the system would not work with the factory Duo-Therm thermostat. A trip to Lowe's, a new Hunter digital thermostat just like mine, and we had the A/C working properly. I'm thinking "How many pennies would it cost the factory to install a digital thermostat rather than those rinky-dink analog type.

I agree with you...Some things are better off fixed yourself. A trip to the dealer is never really something anyone wants to do. I know things can go wrong with a new TT but some things are just bad mistakes. We typically trade up every couple of years and I will make sure I pick a closer dealer to buy from. (even though my dealer has been awesome).

My first TT was a 2012 GrayWolf 28BH that NEVER had any problems and never made a trip back to the dealer. I went from a less expensive line to a $30k line and get the issues. I guess more bells and whistles means more to go wrong.

All and all, im still happy with my purchase. Any manufacturer will have all of these same issues. Hell...your driving a house down a highway.

Update.....

So I took my SolAire in for the fixes on Thursday last week and just got a call that everything is done! Awesome dealership. Ordered new AC, shipped out, installed, tested, and the rest of the list DONE! In 4 days! And they are a "week to 2wks out".

Shout out to Countryside RV in Colfax, Iowa!!

That's awesome! Not that it is going to make your hot wife non-hot, but it will! Down doggie. Zap! HEY WAS THAT YOU??? AC good!!!

Quick turn times. I'm hoping to find that from my dealer here also. We'll soon see. Making the first camping trip and then doing my list. If too long, I will get it to them sooner rather than later.
